Full description


At ARU London we believe that all students should expect that a business-orientated education should lead to a business-orientated career.

To make this expectation a reality we make great efforts to equip all our students with

  • The business and social skills;
  • the work ethic;
  • the analytical and problem solving abilities;
  • the ambition to overcome challenges, that all go towards ensuring a successful future career.

In addition, our careers advisors make use of the latest on-line facilities to ensure that before students start their future job search:

  • they are knowledgeable about the varied and wide-ranging career opportunities that are open to them;
  • they know how to construct an attractive employer friendly CV;
  • they have mastered successful interview techniques; and
  • they understand how to ensure that isometric and aptitude tests show off your strengths to their best advantage.

Our aim is simple: to ensure that at the end of your undergraduate business education, you get the opportunity to put what you have learnt into practice in a career that helps to fully realise your abilities and future potential.

Modules & assessment

  • You will have a minimum of twelve hours’ lectures and tutorials a week (‘contact time’ with a lecturer or tutor).  Each year consists of two semesters of 12 weeks of teaching followed by a period for revision and assessment.
  • The core lectures and tutorials are carefully timetabled to take place on just two days of the week (for example, Mondays and Tuesdays or Thursdays and Fridays).  We believe this offers our students more chance of finding
  • meaningful, better-paid part-time work than students at many universities where the few hours’ lectures are spread over the whole of the week.
  • You will be expected to undertake extensive independent study when you are not attending lectures.
  • Your learning experience will be further enhanced by skills sessions, tutor surgeries and guest lectures which are organised throughout the year.
  • Each course module is delivered through a combination of large group lectures - where the main ideas and concepts are presented – and tutorials where students are broken into smaller groups for an interactive discussion and analysis of the lecture content.
  • Students are assessed predominantly through a mix of examination and coursework.
